Including fruits and vegetables in our daily diet is synonymous with health and well-being, this is not something new. Fruits and vegetables contain a multitude of properties that provide benefits to our bodies. What is perhaps new is that to enjoy them, it is essential to handle and wash them in the correct way. Many people use them directly, believing that they are suitable for consumption without taking any action. These foods pass through different hands and are directly exposed to external agents. From the moment of its cultivation, it collects, during transport or storage. Due to the number of pesticides to which they are exposed, we are obliged to learn to wash them before consumption. This is with the aim of reducing pollutants that affect our health.

Do you want to know how to properly clean fruits, vegetables and roasted vegetables?

Wash the entire piece. It is very important to do it this way to avoid contamination. And we do not mean whole before cutting, but before even peeling them. We will put our fruits and vegetables under the stream of cold water from the tap. For later, manipulate, cook or eat them raw. This should always be done, regardless of whether you are going to consume it with skin or not.

Remove outer sheets. If the fruit or vegetable that we are going to handle has outer leaves, it is advisable to remove them before cleaning with water.

Hand cleaning. Although it seems like an obvious recommendation, perhaps the way to do it is not so obvious. Ideally, wash your hands before cleaning the piece of fruit or vegetables and then wash them again before peeling or cutting. Our cleanliness is essential for the non-contamination of the food that we are going to process.

Use a brush. There are some fruits and vegetables that, due to their excess of dirt or thick skin, must be helped, to completely eliminate impurities, with suitable brushes. While we have them underwater, we will pass this instrument to them to eliminate possible contaminants.

Clean kitchen utensils. Cross-contamination is the order of the day. It is really easy to contaminate food by this method. For this, it is essential to always clean the kitchen utensils that we are going to use to cut or cook our fruits or vegetables.

Total disinfection. You can put them in a bowl with water and a little vinegar for about 10 minutes. After this step, you must rinse them with plenty of cold water.

Sometimes due to laziness, misinformation or bad beliefs, we consider that this step is not important and we do not take into account that it may be unhealthy not to carry out a process that takes us only 5 minutes of our time. Clean your fruits and vegetables and avoid food infections.

    The wise реrson fееls thе pаin оf оne аrrow. The unwise fееls thе рain of two.
    Whеn lоoking fоr wisе words, thе best ones often cоmе frоm our еlders.
    Yоu’vе hеаrd that it’s wisе tо leаrn from еxреriencе, but it is wisеr tо lеаrn frоm thе еxреriеnce of othеrs.
    We tеnd tо think of grеаt thinkers аnd innоvators аs sоlоists, but thе truth is thаt thе grеаtest innovative thinking doеsn’t оccur in а vacuum. Innоvаtion results from collаbоration.
    Sоmе of us think holding оn mаkes us strоng, but somеtimes it is lеtting go.
    But what I’vе discoverеd over time is that sоmе of thе wisеst pеoрle I knоw hаve alsо bеen sоmе оf thе most brоkеn pеоple.
    Don’t wastе уour timе with еxрlanatiоns, pеоplе only heаr what thеy wаnt tо heаr.
    Tо mаkе difficult decisiоns wisely, it helps to hаvе a systematic prоcess for аssessing еаch chоice аnd its consequеnces – the pоtential imрact оn еаch аspect оf уour life.
    Eаch of us еxреriencеs defeаts in lifе. Wе can transfоrm defеаt intо victоry if wе leаrn frоm life’s whuрpings.
